On 16 September 2014, the Indonesian House of Representatives passed the Bill on Copyright to replace the current Law no. 19 of 2002 on Copyright. The new law introduces a number of changes to copyright, such as :
- New protected works such as data compilations, video games and traditional cultural expressions;
- Moral rights and economic rights are separate forms of copyright;
- The duration of copyright protection is extended from 50 years after the creator’s death to 70 years;
- Copyright infringement is specified to include landlord liability and non commercial circulation of online content is now an exception to infringement
- Management of collective rights is covered;
- Criminal copyright infringement now requires a formal complaint from the rights holder (previously the police could act ex officio).
